Few Can Make a Difference

  “If one ember is left alight, no matter how dimly it smolders, a fire will eventually break out.”

 –Robert Greene

What do you think happens when someone tries to do something and no matter what that person does he or she always fails? Of course that individual will lose morale and get sick of the constant failure that is plaguing him/her and consequently just give up with the inner feeling that he/she is just doomed.

This is the feeling that we have been living with for the past two decades. However I want to stress one point: ‘when you hit rock bottom, the only way out is up.‘ Wars are inevitable in life. They have been happening since the dawn of humanity.WWI & II was caused by the Europeans. They were fighting for power, dominance, resources and ideology. Those two wars had caused unimaginable loses of lives. There was pain, desperation and great sufferings. It had destroyed the whole continent of Europe.

Since what was happening in Europe was an internal struggle, the Europeans and their leaders embarked on a mission to end their vicious circle. They figured out a way to externalize their internal struggle and the solution for them was the so called “scramble for Africa” which led to the colonization period. In retrospect, their move was inhumane and immoral.

Coming back to my point, we all have to find a healthy way of externalizing our struggle. I say this because of the peculiar things that are happening in our country. For a start, one of the funniest phenomenon that has developed in our society is that almost  everyone is talking about politics and every man you meet is aspiring to be the president of the country or at least hold a political office. I wonder the man who said “every man in Somalia is his own Sultan.” was right

The only reason I think we are experiencing this strange phenomenon is because our people especially our teenagers have nothing to do. They have no other activities that interest and capture their imagination. They barely have any role models. What do you expect them to do when all they hear and witness and watch from the TVs are the chronic and the unending political and social entanglements that our country is going through?  The ugly truth is that there is nothing else that diverts their attention- the fact that even aspiring to be a professional sportsman/woman is stigma and discouraged by the overwhelming majority doesn’t help either.

I know deep in my heart that there are many great men and women out there who are patriotic. They are disheartened by what is happening in our country. I also know that they truly want to contribute and make a difference regardless of how small their contributions are. I also know that somehow you feel outnumbered and isolated and that you felt like the individual who approached the insane group and tried to make sense to them and at the end was accused of being insane himself, ha-ha.

You don’t need to feel that way. You don’t need to think and say what I can do alone. What you need to remember and do is to continue your struggle and know with great conviction that you are not alone and that few can make a difference and change the destiny of many.

  3. Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people – your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way, keep believing that you can make the difference …………..

I love your enthusiasm and energy , and I know you mean well wi, living in Islamabad amongst the most confused ,depressed self loathing serial complainers I have ever came accross does take its tall on individuals , a policestate in a srmanent siege, morale is non existent , Its important to clink to your roots and remember your homeland and be proud, optimistic, where you envision 2, decades of doom m, I see freedom from the shackles of the empireot having a goverment is tastr frem. We are the pioneers of fourth generation warfare, real fecnomy, and our own indegenous banking system, we are living proof that you don’t have to prostitute your self to the so called international community.

Just us the ex communist bloc struggled to.adjust , every nation willstruggle and go.through wholesale changes, before they change their way of life, we may look like we are coming last, in koofile’s empire, but who cares its on its last legs, but we are amongst the first nations in the world when you look to the future , the inevitable rise of the empire of Mahdi.
